Pointe Shoe Policy


Pointe work requires a high level of strength, focus, and physical development. At age 10, young ladies can request to be evaluated for Pointe Shoes. At this stage of a young dancer’s life, bones and muscles are still forming, thus the decision must be approached with care and caution. It is RC Dance Center’s policy that young ladies under the age of 14 must agree to complete a minimum of 1-year of curriculum classes of their level during their first year on Pointe. The Director and Faculty will also determine the appropriateness of students performing on Pointe on a case by case basis. Each student will be handled on a case by case basis as deemed appropriate by their personal physical development. The Director and Faculty have created this policy in order limit injuries and to ensure the safety and well-being of each student.
